Can I Add My Own CGI Scripts

This article contains information about adding CGI scripts.

Yes, our LINUX web servers have the capability to run CGI scripts in your own "cgi-bin" directory. Scripts may be written in Perl and CGI languages.

Here are some helpful tips to follow when installing scripts:

1. Upload to your cgi-bin directory to ensure proper file permission settings. All scripts on our server must have permissions set to 755 (rwx-rx-rx). If you need help in changing script permissions, please see the following:

2. Upload in ASCII transfer mode (and NOT BINARY mode)

3. The first line of each script must read: #!/usr/bin/perl

4. Ensure the permissions are set to 755
